    I wasn't sure as I never heard of this company. I wanted a hand scanner as I do genealogy and wanted something that I could use to scan pictures/books/documents without the expense of making tons of photo copies. I have just started to use this and so far it is great. I have a 2gb micro sd chip and so far I don't need a bigger one. I have started scanning some of my documents to attach to a family tree file and so far it is very clear and easy to use. I will see how it does in the long run as I am sure it will cut my costs in half when I do my research.

    From the moment I opened the package (which was a good one, and on time) I have been pleasantly surprised at their service. I had a bit of trouble getting started, but one phone call with a knowledgeable and freindly rep got me on the straight and narrow. I have been scanning, filing and editing images since then.. about a month ago. The device now rests in it's onw cubicle ready to scan for me at the push of a button. Love it!

    TaoTronics TT-DS011 1050 DPI 1.44 TFT Color Display hand held Scanner USB recharging, Lithium battery powered, 1050 DPI, That is a virtual dream come true. I can think of a couple of times a copy was absolutely imperitive, the only thing to do was break and go find a copy shop. Not the easiest solution given location, distance to next civilisation and return time. Not a very good solution. You could pack a high resolution flatbed scanner and a laptop to control it, but that in itself is almost as bad. The savings from just one of those emergency needs for a scanner would more than pay for a Device. This device is compact and efficient, simple to use and simple to maintain. The acquisition of this device was solely tailored by the situation of a need to make a 1200 mile round trip safari to far side of the middle of nowhere to copy for posterity historic documents that by all likelyhood will become unavailable soon. Most frustrating to think something like a family bible that has 40 pages of pedigree that has been recorded by several generations over 200 some odd years will end up in a landfill because the current generation does not care for that old foagie stuff. 300 year old grants, disintigrating on their own merit. Revolutionary war records going into the trash. Makes me cringe. Simpler uses, and OCR scan to keep from typing in a transcription of a mineral abstract. Or recipe. Problems solved with a wave of the hand. MDL#: TT-DS011 ASIN: B00JZL8KSO URL: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00JZL8KSO

    TaoTronics® Mobile Scanner Handheld Scanner Document Scanner 900DPI Colour & Mono Handyscan For Document, Photo, Receipts, Books + JPG / PDF Format Selection(Insertion of Micro SD Card) TT-DS001 I have reviewed this handy little scanner on my YouTube channel [...] and if this link is deleted by the moderators then please search YouTube for this video review watch?v=5RM5M8sOtf0 if interested. You need to watch the quality of the scanning and the ease of using this scanner. PLUS POINTS - Reasonable priced accessory that works well with laptops, android devices or any USB OTG phone or tablet - Would be very useful for students to scan photos and tables from thick books for projects as its a pain using a flatbed scanner for scanning bits from thick books. - Will be useful for people who work from location or travelling salesmen - It scans long strip of bills, patterns on cloth, books, cards in black and white and color very nicely. - I was surprised with the good quality of the scans even in low quality and in high quality my video reviews shows that it even picks up the thread in the patterns of the bedsheet scanned by me and very nice quality images and text even at 300% zoom - Easy acess to all features including microsd card and battery compartment - OCR software included but I didnt use it so cant comment on its usefulness but its there if you need it. - Very portable, powered by AA battery, easy to use, comes with sleek pouch, good manual - Will be nice to scan personalised cards made by my child for her grandparents and email the photo to them without needing to use the big scanners. - People interested in geneology will find this useful for scanning little bits of info for their family tree. NEGATIVE POINTS - Sorry i couldnt find any negative points! Wish I had got something like this long ago. This was the first time I used a portable scanner and I have two flat bed scanner at home and would gladly use this portable scanner for scanning photos and tables for my presentations for teaching purposes. Wish i has had this earlier as life would have been easier trying to scan small bits from thick books. - You need a steady hand but its very easy and didnt have issues with errors, even the long strip of billing was easy to scan with only minor errors but still very easy to read. - If you need to scan entire books or manuals then you are better off using a flatbed scanner. This will be useful for smaller jobs and on the move jobs. Very pleased to have been given the opportunity to review this excellent product. I never imagined that a portable handheld scanner could be this good at resolution and colour accuracy and text sharpness. I will be using this product for a long while for scanning stuff for my teaching presentations at work and scanning all my old photos at my mums place abroad on my next holiday so that my child can see them at her leisure. Disclaimer: I received this product free for honest review purposes and have had it for almost two weeks now before writing my review. You can see from my youtube review (link given above) that what i have said here is an honest reflection of the quality of the scanning.

how to use Customers are chatting about this View conversation
A: The device is super simple to use: 1-Insert 2 new alkaline AA batteries. 2-On your computer format a micro SD card to erase anything that's in it (You don't have to reformat it, but is better to dedicate one micro SD just to the scanner).3-Turn On the scanner. 4- Choose scanning mode: JPEG or PDF (Jpeg for photos, pdf for documents). 5-Scan at your heart's desire. Remember to go steady and try again if does not scan all the way through. With practice you'll get better. To view or xfer files just plug the USB cord provided into your computer and use your favorite Photo or PDF software to edit or do whatever. You don't need to remove your Micro Sd card to view content. You can also view it on your TV, BD player, Tablet or anything that support USB connection. Hope this help, It's so simple that I wrote all this from memory, but you can always read the included manual. Thanks!

Can this scan 11" x 17" sheets in one run? Customers are chatting about this View conversation
A: the scan width is 8.5" but it can scan forever. I've used it on big paintings, just running it down the canvas to copy the image. I've done scans 8"x48" this way.

What are the differneces between TT-DS001 & TT-DS003? Customers are chatting about this View conversation
A: It's very difficult to say what the actual differences are, but you can click on either the 001, 003, or 004 and look at the Product Details below. But I can't say whether there are significant differences in the scanner itself. The 003 and 004 have extra things included, but whether that is worth the extra money is hard to determine, and is up to you to decide. Good luck. In my case, all I needed to do was to scan black and white documents for tax purposes, and the 001 worked surprisingly well for that.

Does this work with a PC to do filing? Is their a file program or do you need to enter in and sort the receipts etc? Customers are chatting about this View conversation
A: This is simply a scanner - definitely not the Neat filing system that's advertised a lot. I got it on the recommendation of a genealogy buff but haven't used it enough to get reliable results. I need to get the friend to give me some pointers.

I bought Tao Trornics Document scanner which has only 10 millimeter opening for the micro SD card. Tell me where to buy and how to install this card. Customers are chatting about this View conversation
A: I purchased and use a Kingston micro SD card with an adapter to fit the standard card slot. The one I have is a SDC4/16GB sold with the adapter. I am sure you can purchase it from Amazon.com.
